Welcome to my blog!
My name is Chloe Danielle and I am a twenty-one year old from Indiana. I am recently engaged to an amazing man named Justin, and together we have two fur babies. Our oldest is a four-year old female fawn boxer named Calley Jo and our youngest is a one-year old male reverse brindle named Ceazar Jay. Justin and I both come from smaller families where we are both the only child. We find family is extremely important and we are truly blessed with the family we have. While we may not spend enough time with our family’s due to busy work schedules we truly do love them and appreciate all that they do for the both of us.
I recently started a new job with a financial institution, where I am blessed with an amazing team of co-workers. I am surrounded by amazing and intelligent individuals who are helping me grow my career. If you know me you have probably heard me talk about finance once or twice. I have been interested in finance since a young age. Growing up, my mom always worked at a bank and on Saturdays I got to go in with her. Being the young and mischievous little girl I was I would wonder around a little bit, and somehow I always ended up in the drive thru. I would either sit and mess around on the type writer eating suckers or I would play with the microphone pretending I worked at McDonald’s. Eventually my mom would come get me and tell me to leave the tellers alone. It wasn’t until my Freshman year of high school that I truly started becoming more interested in finance. I had a history teacher that would talk to me and we started talking about stocks one day, and the stock market, and of course Wall Street. Ever since that moment I have wanted to sell stocks. I don’t know what it was about that moment, but I haven’t forgotten it thus far.
I graduated high school in the Spring of 2015, and deferred my first semester of college to take care of my nana. She had a form of Leukemia, where she needed a bone marrow transplant in order for her to survive. On August 12, 2015 my aunt, nana, and I packed our lives up and made a 2 1/2 hour drive to Oakbrook, Illinois where she would be treated at Loyola Medical Center. We were there for about 3 1/2 long months. We returned back to Indiana the day before Thanksgiving 2015. While it was extremely hard to give up my very first semester of college, family does and always will come first, and there is not a moment that goes by today, that I don’t thank God for giving my nana a second chance at life. For that I am extremely grateful.
I started my first semester of College January 2016, at Indiana University South Bend. I attended for three semesters going for a degree in finance before taking my first position at a Credit Union. I started working full-time at the Credit Union debating whether or not I should be in a classroom. I continued with the Credit Union for about eight months before receiving an offer from a Financial Institution that I just could not refuse. I finally have my foot in the door, and my future has never looked brighter. They have already offered to help me out with schooling and put me through classes to get my Series 7, which I could not be more grateful for. The opportunities I have to grow within this company are tremendous. While the decision I made to stop attending college for the time being was an extremely hard, I have found that it was the right one for me.
Now that you know a little more about my background let’s discuss the focus of Polka Dots and Peonies. This Blog with be a fun mix of a little bit of everything, and a glimpse into the life of Chloé Danielle. I am a little bit of everything and I want this blog to represent that. While my main focus with most likely be make-up and fashion, there will be lifestyle and family as well. I want my blog to be a representation of who I am, and what I believe in, and I want it to continue to grow with me.
If you have stayed with me until the end of this I thank you! Keep shining my loves and I’ll talk to you in the next post!
Love Always, Chloé Danielle
